The Eagles surprised many by winning the NFC East and going to the playoffs last year, but their roster is not without holes that they’ll need to plug during the upcoming NFL Draft. With some needs to address and only six picks available to them, here’s a mock draft of what Chip Kelly and company may do during the 2014 NFL Draft.

Round 1, 22nd Overall - Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech

Cornerback is Philadelphia's biggest need coming into the draft, and the Eagles will like adding a physical player like Fuller who has good coverage skills and can also help out against the run. He should be available for them at No. 22, and he'll be the best overall corner still on the board.

Round 2, 54th Overall - Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State

The Eagles won't let Day 2 pass them by without taking a skill position player, and Benjamin is a great fit for them. He provides good size to complement all of their speed, he's willing to block and even if he's not a polished receiver as a rookie, he'll be a great red zone target, making him a great addition to the Philadelphia offense.

Round 3, 86th Overall - Jackson Jeffcoat, DE, Texas

The Eagles need some help on the edge, and Jeffcoat is a player who could play defensive end or stand up and play outside linebacker, giving Philadelphia depth in the front seven and another pass rushing option.

Round 4, 122nd Overall - Ed Reynolds, S, Stanford

Even with the addition of Malcolm Jenkins, the Eagles could use some help at safety. Ed Reynolds will bring a lot of size and physicality to the Philadelphia secondary, and he could end up being a steal in the 4th round.

Round 5, 162nd Overall - Khairi Fortt, LB, California

Philadelphia needs to add some depth at outside linebacker, and Fortt could be a perfect fit for them. He's long and lean with some pass rushing ability, as well as the skills to drop back in coverage. He didn't have a standout college career, but he has the athleticism that could blossom in the NFL.

Round 7, 237th Overall - John Urschel, OG, Penn State

Urschel is one of the smartest players available in the draft, and with the Eagles needing some depth along the offensive line, he's a safe pick to take in Round 7.
